    I am looking into this, but found postgrad prices a bit offputting for me at the moment, I dont like anything quoting me costs of between 6000-10000

    Yep - I am too.

    I wrote a detailed proposal on how it would benefit the school etc. and got it funded through the CPD budget.

    Just means I have to actually do it now.

    I have done a few modules now. I did T215 when it first came out. Quite enjoyed it too. Although on one of my courses the tutorials were too far away to get to so I missed them all. I did find it lonely too as there was nobody to knock ideas off, they have forums but sometimes discussing something makes it sink in better!

    I'd like to do something with OU but not sure what. I got a degree from Uni but like the idea of expanding my knowledge.

    I was on the first run of TM128, and quite enjoyed it.

    When I retire circa 2086 I plan to complete a PhD in History.

    Most of my friends back home have PhDs, it really is like being Howard from the Big Bang Theory when you're the only non-doctor.

    I've done a few:

    T215
    TM227
    T155
    T161

    Now doing B628 which is more management, a bit of pain though.

    Yeah, me too. Can't decide whether to stick with the geek stuff (can use some of my other quals and knock off a year) or do something completely different. I think I would like to do social anthropology...

    I did a certificate in business studies (c63) last year and found it interesting. Also - financial help from the OU is good so see what you can get.

    The problem is now with the price increases, it's made the OU unaffordable unless you really have to do it for career progression. I feel this defeats the object and reason for the original existence of the OU, which was education open for all.
    If you are thinking of further study, have a look at part time degrees at your local Universities, these are now usually working out cheaper than the OU. My wife completed an MA part time at Liverpool last year and it was several thousand pounds cheaper than a similar MA through the OU.
